Enjoying another almost nice day.

Where are we today ?
        Well here we are again another dull overcast day, temps around 55f (13c). Ya know not really too bad, just not nice for sitting outside in shorts and sandals. But after a few weeks of this stuff the forecast is looking up starting tomorrow. Says sunshine, not so much warmer but sunshine!!!! And sunshine is welcome at any temperature. The trend looks like a lot more of it coming with the temperatures rising almost every day after the weekend.
       Was gonna BBQ a chicken today, but think I will wait for tomorrow. Much nicer to BBQ when the sun is shining. Stopped by the closest grocery store that happened to be Walmart 7 miles away on the Gulf Coast and picked up a few things including a nice roast beef almost 1/2 price ($6.00). So in the slow cooker it goes, with some taters, celery, onions, fresh garlic and carrots and just let it go for the day.

Graders on break
        One thing we had to do was top up our Verizon Mifi jetpack account as we used it all up 3 days short of the month for our prepaid 4g mobile broadband. Just lovin this amazing little thing, has been working great for us and very fast on 4g. The top up was a piece of cake too, and no contract. I had picked up some refill cards at the grocery store and when our internet ran out it told me what to do. We can't top up with a Canadian credit card very easily, but this worked piece of cake. Just called the phone number, gave them the pin numbers of the cards and 5 minutes later we are up and running once again. 
        So now can putter around, walkabout the resort for fresh air and get some exercise ya know. And chat with the neighbor (neighbour) from Wasaga Beach Ontario.Take a few pics to share with ya. Compute a bit more and even had time to put our noses in the books for a while. 
this old cabin is in rough shape but
 makes for an interesting picture
nice boat dock on the Bayou
yep thats us
this would be perfect on a hot sunny day
         Problem being thou and its a big problem, we have to smell this roast cooking all day long and boy its smelling good! But again we are strong and will suffer until the very end, then devour the beast! Its a tough job and if you had dropped in you could have helped us. But then we would not of had much leftovers, thats why we did not tell you in advance, eh, eh....
         So added some cauliflower with cheese sauce, Yorkshire pudding, and homemade gravy, extra hot horseradish perfect meal for the weather we are having.

tender roast beef
sure hit the spot
         Day is done, well almost, its dark out now. We can read for a while, compute a bit, catch a quick show on the tube and call it another fun day in southern Mississippi.
         Thanks for stopping by again, if you had been sooner could have had supper with us. No problem thou we can take care of the rest.

Check out the map below to see where we have been this winter

  1. Now that looks like a meal fit for a king (or a queen!!).

    I have never seen graders on the beach (I live in Oregon). Why do they do this?

    1. Looks like they were grading the sand that had been washed up back towards the water.

  2. As you know, we are freezing here in the Phoenix area, for the last week or so.

    But, the saving grace is that the sun shines just as bright as ever and there is no wind.

    George, you are killin' us here with the roast beef, yorkshire pudding, and all the fixin's.

    Hmmmm... think I can smell it from here !!

    Take care ... TnT

    1. Keep warm there and you to can cook up a nice meal too on these cold days.

  3. Wow, looks like another great meal, glad you had a great day.

  4. Forget about where you are, that roast beef looks great! Haven't had a roast in a long while. Might have to look into that....

    1. A nice roast is a great treat once in a while, enjoy!

  5. I can look at the beach in any weather. However, sometimes it's just too cold to sit on it. Hopefully, your weather will improve soon. We finally have our cold weather going away and good weather here.

  6. Sunshine is good. Looks like a nice park.

    1. Yes it is very nice! and a water front site too!


We love it when you take the time to drop us a line.
